Format: Paperback
A well photographed book that explains and introduces the concept of Swedish design at a very simple level for the non decorator crowd. After reading this book just visit any Ikea store to verify the information and start your decorating scheme.In many ways Martha Stewart has duplicated her interiors by using this cool and clean look. Perhaps you can do the same, at a fraction of the cost, with these simple and inexpensive ways to decorate your home.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a much more practical book on Swedish interiors. The photographs in this book were beautiful, granted, but most of the interiors depicted were extravagant, lavish, and not at all relative to my design/decorating means. Maybe if I owned a castle, yes. I was looking for a more straightforward and realistic design book covering color palettes, decor choices, etc. The pictures were as uptopian as the price of the book, so I returned it.
